Key West Restaurants that Cook Your Catch!

Are you visiting the island of Key West and going out on a fabulous fishing charter with Dream Catcher Charters or one of the other boats in the Key West fishing fleet? Wondering what to do when you caught yourself a keeper? I get this question almost daily. My suggestions is always this… Bring it to a local restaurant to have it cooked up to enjoy. Fresh fish always tastes amazing!

Hook and Cook Cook your catch
These folks were fishing with the crew on board the “InXS” out of Key West at the Oceans Edge Resort and Marina. They took their catch to Yellowfin Bar and Grill to eat.

Just about every Key West fishing charter offers to clean the legally harvested fish you catch and prepare them for the kitchen to be cooked. You hook it, they cook it. We call it the “Hook and Cook”.

Below is a list of Key West restaurants that will be happy to cook your catch for you. Just make sure that the fish is filleted by the captain or the mate beforehand. Otherwise you will have issues getting these establishments to cook your catch.

I love fresh fish as much as the next person, but please be respectful of the resources. Keeping a fish or two for a meal is great. But why fill a cooler full of fish that is going to get frozen or wasted? Especially  when you could be contributing to the destruction of a fishery by wiping out schools and burning down fish habitat that will not be able to recover.
